How to get Back into Blogging

Uncategorized, Unkategorised

When I woke up to the first day of 2019 I knew, alongside my resolutions, I wanted to start populating my blog with my nonsense thoughts again. *Pictures looking like Hilary Duff in The Perfect Man as she re-caps her day with the help of her keyboard.* When I fall out of blogging, much like […]

Why You Should Buy Books from a Charity Shop

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

As much as I’m the kind of reader who aims to finish a book with it looking as close to bookshop-shelf worthy as possible, I totally get why people like books to look as “loved” as possible. (Although I will NEVER understand why people bend their covers back *shudders*.) I love a dip into a […]

Sunday the Sixth

Kathventures, Uncategorized

Sunday the sixth of January allowed me a sleep in. When I pulled aside my duvet, shortly followed by my curtain, a sunny morning beckoned me beyond my window. So I showered, pulled on my new favourite jumper and painted my eyes sparkly. I sat my camera on my shoulder and tied up my new […]

The Paphos City Guide | Food and Drink


Kathventures

It’s now been just over a week since Aaron and I arrived back from what we’ve dubbed as our favourite summer holiday yet. We visited the awesome Paphos, a city that sits on the southwest coast of Cyprus. The city of meze, rocky seas and KEO (the local beer that we loved so much we […]

22/52: While I Was Sleeping


Kath's Bookshelf

Before I headed off on holiday just over a week ago, I tortured my heart by reading a Dani Atkins book. My mum had read While I Was Sleeping a couple of weeks before and she wanted to speak about it with someone so badly she bought me my very own copy. I have since […]

21/52: Everything I Never Told You


Kath's Bookshelf

This year I’ve set myself the challenge to read fifty-two books before 2019; a challenge I’m documenting over on my Goodreads account. While I’m by no means confident I’ll get anywhere near fifty-two books before the year’s up, I’m feeling more cocky than I have since early February. I saw this book was only £2 on […]

20/52: This is Going to Hurt


Kath's Bookshelf

I can’t quite believe it but I actually, for the first time throughout my reading challenge, have a back catalogue of book reviews to post. I set myself the, in hindsight, ridiculous challenge (which you can follow over on my Goodreads account) to read fifty-two books this year. While I am far from being ahead, […]

19/52: Difficult Women


Kath's Bookshelf

As if by magic, I have finished reading the nineteenth book of this year, Difficult Women by Roxane Gay. My New Year’s Resolution was to read fifty-two books this year and, in turn, document it over on my Goodreads account. With a new job giving me evenings and weekends alongside a holiday booked for next month, […]

18/52: Leah on the Off Beat


Kath's Bookshelf

Today I’ve spent my Saturday exactly as I would have back in the day; after a run, I hid away from the dull day outside with a book. Specifically, Leah on the Off Beat by Becky Albertalli. I’ve challenged myself to read fifty-two books this year (check out my Goodreads account HERE) and have, thus […]

Three Books NOT to Pack for Your Summer Holiday


Kath's Bookshelf

If you’re not already on holiday, you may be heading towards sunshine and beaches (not that we can complain in the UK right now) very soon. There have been three stand out moments where I’ve found myself on holiday or returning from a holiday absolutely regretting my choice in book. While these three books are […]

Why English Grads Should Do Freelance Writing


Unkategorised

As of today I have been freelance writing for a whole year. Just before this day last year I was a fresh-faced English graduate only able to secure a couple to a few shifts a week from the Saturday job I landed at sixth form. When I received the “you’ve got the job” email, sat […]

17/52: One of us is Lying


Kath's Bookshelf

I finished my seventeenth book of the year earlier this week, alongside my mum. Well, shortly after my mum because I’m not sure she actually ever stops reading. We decided to read One of us is Lying by Karen. M. Mcmanus at the same time which, being that it’s a whodunit, it was quite a […]

16/52: Eve of Man


Kath's Bookshelf

Last week I finished my sixteenth book of the year, Eve of Man by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher. As a New Year’s Resolution, I decided to try and read fifty-two books this year. At eleven books behind schedule, I am definitely the underdog, but feel free to take a look at what I’m reading now […]
